May also think about breaking breakouts into shorter/longer chunks
Plenary Talk Ideas[edit | edit source]
- Gavin Schmidt TED Talk
- Jerry Sheehan, OSTP’s Assistant Director for Scientific Data and Information
- Modeler panel?
- Christine Borgman
- Damian Brady, UMaine oceanographer/modeler (http://bit.ly/1Kr583F)
- Andrew Turner from Esri’s Vienna office
- Nancy Ritchey at NOAA
on earth science + data/computer science collaborations --
- Natalie Boelman (Lamont) is working with Columbia Engineering's Dan Ellis to automate the analysis of Arctic bird calls to understand how climate change is affecting annual songbird migrations: http://bit.ly/1J3Owzo
- Joaquim Goes (Lamont) + computer scientists at Columbia University are working to understand what has caused an unusual plankton-like species to rapidly invade the Arabian Sea food chain, threatening fisheries that sustain more than 100 million people living at the sea’s edge: http://bit.ly/1U7YyaP
Discussion and notes[edit | edit source]
Visioneers Meeting 10/20/15[edit | edit source]
Participants: Annie B., Annie K., Denise H., Bruce C., and Jamie R.
Annie Keyes discussed Summer Meeting locations
- Narrowed down to Durham, NH, Chapel Hill, NC, Asheville, NC, and Gainsville, FL
- Gainsville does not have wifi capacity
- Should hear from Asheville, NC this week
- Call participants ranked Durham and Asheville as top choices
- Did not like the distance of the Chapel Hill location to an urban center
Annie Keyes discussed SWAG
- SWAG: (bags, moleskine notebooks, pens)
Winter Meeting Theme Discussion
- Frontiers in Earth Sciences Big Data
- No sub-theme for winter
- Like the idea of "Earth Sciences: The Original Big Data" on stickers
Push for more sessions at Winter Meeting
- Suggest that Annie B. ping group leaders to discuss session in their monthly telecons
- Consensus that everyone always submits last minute
- Suggestion that there should be a higher-level than 20K
- Are we really limiting to "two only?"
Visioneers Meeting 8/31/15[edit | edit source]
Participants: Erin R., Annie B., Dan K., Rebecca F., Denise H., Bruce C., Ken K. and Jamie R.
- Denise H. suggested Lavalier microphones and an ipad or dedicated laptop to improve remote participation.
- The DC area for summer meetings has issues (cost, hotel coverage). Asheville's new collaborative workspace and NOAA connections are positives.
- Highlight the success story of the Drone Cluster as something that ESIP can facilitate.
- Visioneers could come up with a new name that combines BOF and Hackerspace, i.e. a place to connect that can also be action-oriented.
- Winter Meeting Theme could align with common-theme suggestions from ESIP meeting (Denise H. to share G-doc) surveys AND the needs of NOAA and NASA.
- Ask our NOAA and NASA connections about theme ideas .
- Next Visioneers Meeting in 2-3 weeks (Erin R. or AB to suggest meeting time)
